Important Room Key Information

As the closing deadline approaches, The Office of Residential Life would like to take this opportunity to remind you of the proper check-out procedure.  As you know, University housing for all non-graduating students closes at noon on Saturday May 15, 2010.  All students not pre-approved for transition housing or extended stay must be properly checked out by that time. 

 In order to properly check-out you must:

  1. Return your residential key(s).  If you have lost your key, please return your envelope with a note indicating that your key has been lost.
  2. Completely vacate your housing assignment (room, apartment and/or wood frame) prior to noon on May 15, 2010.  This means that all of your belongings must be moved out and are no longer in your Spring 2010 housing assignment.

Failure to do either of the above will result in a late check-out fee of $250.00 plus additional per diem and lock change charges as required.  Residential Life staff will be checking all buildings to ensure that only students preapproved for transition housing and extended stay remain on campus past the closing deadline.  The Office of Residential Life will be open for key drop off from 9am to noon on Saturday May 15, 2010.  Additionally, students may leave keys in the key drop box, located on the High Street side of the glass walkway between North and South College.  Please secure your key in a key return envelope so that we may correctly record that your key was returned.  Key return envelopes were left in your WesBox on April 30th.  Additional envelopes are available at the Office of Residential Life and in a bin on the left side of the key drop box.

Again to avoid an improper or late check-out fee be sure to completely vacate your housing assignment and return your residential keys by noon on May 15, 2010.

Donate Your Stuff to Waste Not!

Donate to Waste Not!
Waste Not is Wesleyan’s student-organized collection of unwanted items at the end of the Spring semester. Don’t throw away your stuff at the end of the year, give it a new home!
In the fall 2010, we’ll have a huge tag sale in an effort to keep our stuff in circulation and out of the dumpster. Money from the sale and leftover items will go to charity. All food and laundry detergent is also donated to charity!

How to help!
If you live in a residence hall:
Look out for the taped off “Waste Not Collection Zones” on your dorm’s entrance or a stairwell landing. You can leave any items there or, if your item is too large, give the Waste Not Coordinators a call or email and we will pick it up for you!

If you live in a program house: Let your house manager know you want to participate in Waste Not and/or send a quick email out to We’re taping off collection zones in any houses that want to participate! You can leave any unwanted items there and they will be collected by volunteers later in the week!

If you live in a senior wood frame: To let us know when your items are ready to donate to Waste Not, just put an official Waste Not hanger on your door (you should have received this over the weekend). All the necessary information is on this hanger. During senior week we will be coming around to pick up items from the wood frames.

You can also drop off items directly at the Waste Not collection center in Zion Church, a few doors down from Neon Deli and across from the Freeman Athletic Center, starting Saturday, May 15th!


Items you can donate:

clothing, furniture, chests of drawers, shelves, refrigerators, microwaves, rugs, lamps, electronics, printers, alarm clocks, phones, textbooks, course packs, books for classes, other books, posters, dorm decorations in general, bedding, dishes/kitchen ware, hangers, mirrors, food (will be donated upon collection in the Spring), cleaning supplies, laundry detergent (also will be donated), brooms, household chemicals

Student Health Insurance

To Students in the Class of 2013:

A letter, instructions and benefit flyer about the annual University insurance requirements for 2010-2011 will be sent to your home address in mid-June.  The Gallagher Koster website will open on May 14 if you want to comply with the requirements before you leave campus for summer recess.  Please go to and follow the instructions for showing proof of private insurance (waive) or to enroll in the university-sponsored plan. 

Have a safe and healthy break.   Joyce Walter, Director of Davison Health Center

Last Call for the Shuttle
